Telenor Replaces its Mobile Net with Huawei and Starent

Huawei announced a major contract with Telenor to supply multi-base stations for 2G, 3G/UMTS and 4G/LTE. Telenor is going to replace its entire mobile services infrastructure in Norway during the next years, with the aim of creating a flexible and cost efficient platform for mobile services. Financial terms were not disclosed. Starent Networks has been selected for the mobile core.

"This is the biggest upgrade of the mobile network in Norway we have ever carried out. It will create a solid and flexible base for further developing the services offered by the Telenor mobile network and the quality of those services. Our aim is to provide customers with better, more innovative services across the country. This means better in terms of capacity, speed and stability," explains Ragnar Kårhus, head of Telenor Norway.
